About the event
Trust Me, it’s a Forward!’(TMF) is a table-top game about trust in the mis/disinformation age. The game is set in a fantastical world that is alive and bustling deep under a turbulent ocean hidden under layers of icy crust. Within this world, factions of society are faced with crises, choices, and impossible decisions. There can only be one loser!
TMF turns the disembodied nature of digital messages into a game. This game simulates behaviour that results from our interactions with information manufactured by large data systems that wield the power and resources to bend facts and public opinion. Given our reconfigured ideas of trust and safety, how do we identify fact from fiction to make decisions that allow us to survive the game? This experience is an inquiry into the changing nature of trust in a time when the information we receive through social media has the power to influence many of our opinions.
Duration: 2-2.5 hours (including a discussion post game) | English | Groups of 13 people
Trust Me, it’s a Forward! is commissioned by the Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan Bangalore under the aegis of the Goethe-Institut’s Kultursymposium Weimar 2023.
